AACSB marked its 100 year anniversary, and took out a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal celebrating the "best of the best" in business education. The Romain College of Business is one of only about 750 business schools worldwide with AACSB accreditation. Not only is the Romain College accredited in both undergraduate and graduate programs, but USI's accounting program has earned a separate accreditation, a distinction shared by only select accredited institutions.

AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.

AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.
